happy fall y’all!
Fall is one of my favorite times of year and favorite to decorate. I thought I would share a little bit of what I did inside my house. Guess you can tell I was kinda anti orange pumpkins this year.
This is an antique toolbox my daddy had covered up in his shop. I think he thought I was a little crazy when I was describing what I was looking for.
To give the pumpkins some height I stuffed the inside of the toolbox with black tissue paper then added Spanish moss.
I also keep it simple when I’m decorating for fall, Easter and sometimes Christmas by just adding to the decorations I have year round. The gather sign, which I thought was perfect for Thanksgiving, is painted on an old window.
Use old readers digest to give height. They usually can be picked up at the thrift store for less than a dollar.
When it’s time to take down the pumpkins and start decorating for Christmas, I usually give them to a friend who has a compost bin. And… every year around August there will be new pumpkins growing in the compost. Sigh… if I could just get them to wait until October.
To everything there is a season. Ecclesiastes 3:1
